The dream filter is an artisanal object, which besides having several legends and mysteries, serves to adorn any environment and leave it very delicate and sophisticated.
The best-known legend is that of an ancient Native American tribe, the Ojibwe. The tribe believed that the most important thing on earth was to unravel the dreams, so they built an amulet to keep them in their sleep. Forming a hoop using flexible willow branches, with lines forming a web and hanging bird feathers, was born the dream filter or dream catcher. So that any kind of bad energy from the environment, especially nightmares, could be filtered.
The Ojibwe people put them near their beds, so that their good dreams passed through the center of the filter and the bad ones were caught around the whole web.
Each element of the dream filter has its own meaning:
- THE upside works with our head, our mind;
- O circle , which is the standard form, represents the sun, the circle of life and eternity;
- THE Web , represents the path, our free will, our interpersonal relationships and our soul;
- O center represents the force of the universe and our inner self;
- At feathers represent air or breath. If the feathers are female owl, they represent wisdom, if it be of a male eagle, they represent courage.
- At little stones work as a form of healing, deal with our fears and cleanse our sorrows.
- And the Colors have the ability to convey feelings of relaxation or even encouragement to their mood. Although the meanings of colors are universal, according to each culture, variations may occur.
The shapes that come out of the pattern also have their meanings, such as the triangular shaped filter that represents three people or three aspects of life that the individual wants to work on. Double filters can represent two intertwined lives.
Nowadays we see many of them, in different sizes, colors, formats, for all tastes and ages. They are great as amulets, for various types of home decoration, earrings, t-shirts and tattoos.
